“What did the apple skin say to the apple?"/"I’ve got you covered.”

An apple riddle is:

Q: What did the apple skin say to the apple?
A: I’ve got you covered.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 2007. “What did the rug say to the floor?"/"I’ve got you covered” is a similar riddle that has been cited in print since at least 1970.


16 December 1970, Alton (IL) Evening Telegraph, “Fun Time—The Riddle Box,” pg. B-12, col. 5:
What did the rug say to the floor?
I’ve got you covered.
